It's Only Rock'n Roll
In Satisfaction the crowd jump and sing a little, already in Let's Spend the Night Together it was more like calming down, and Flip the Switch didn't have the classic choir Oh Yeah Oh yeah Take me up baby I'm ready go, that we got from the crowd here in Buenos Aires. Ruby Tuesday was incredibly beautiful like here in Buenos Aires. Keith sat down beside Mick with the acoustic guitar. Saint Of Me is already one of my favorite songs of Bridges to Babylon, in the break Mick could continue because the crowd didn't sing...
Like a Rolling Stone again with Bob Dylan, but this time better. Then it's on to Keith, and he is saying: "Rio It's good to be back." And the they play You don't have to it mean it.
In the center of the stadium they do Little Quennie, continues with I Just Want To Make Love To You great blues!!...and as finish You Got Me Rocking. For Brown Sugar the audience wave their t-shirts. And for what I can see globally for the TV it is a very good show without musical mistakes - they play calmer and I see a similar public to that of the Argentina, but not so crazy.
Start time: 21:45 End time : 00:00
The set list:
The show started at 21:45 and ended at 00:00 with Keith on stage, alone, begining with Satisfaction. There wasn't any big difference in this concert, in comparison with the others in Latin America: like in Argentina, Mick sang Like a Rolling Stone with Bob Dylan, and seemed to me that Bob was feeling strange with the way the Stones played his song. It was more "oh, it's a little bit different" than "oh, what've they done to my song?".
I think the greatest moment of the show was, for everybody in general, Out of Control, where the visual effects were very impressive. For me, Ruby Tuesday alone made the night worthwhile.
The show was broadcasted live to all Brazil by Rede Globo , which is the biggest television network in Brazil. Unfortunately, I couldn't record it because i was in the show, but i 'll try to get it!
